RE: sattlelite

I would like to put a dish on the roof but i have a rubber roof.I am a little worried about drilling holes in it for this purpose.How should i go about it.Is it ok to use this dicor sealant and drill holes or would i go about it in a different way since it is rubber?

RE: sattlelite

Before doing that I'd suggest looking at some of the carryout models. We presently use the Winegard G2. See previous post re this model.The problem with the carryout models is if its raining you would get soakin wet from having to take it out and i really couldnt see myself lugging it to the roof everytime i wont to use it. The portable domes rarely need to be put on the roof. They can be placed wherever they have a clear view of the southern sky, making them much more flexible than a roof mount dish. Most folks deploy their portable dish on arrival at their site and stow it again at the end of their stay.If you set them down outside the rig someone will steal it dont you think?

sattlelite

Just what is involved when installing a minimax sattlelite to the top of the rv.Do you have to drill holes in the roof and if so can you use eternabond tape to protect from leaking?Is it just as simple as to run the cable down through the frig vent or are there more to it?

RE: propane detector

You mean something like this? "Clicky" help appreciated! http://www.walmart.com/ip/Propane-Tank-Gauge/13350316 If you have removable 20# (or 30#) bottles, you can put one of these on your tank. With all propane appliances turned OFF, open the propane tank valve to pressurize the line, then close the propane tank valve. Watch the needle on the gauge. If it drops over a period of time, you have a leak. If it remains in the same place, no leak. Used one like this for many years on our TC. Won't work now with my fixed mount tank tho.. STYea this looks good to for a cat heater that i was looking at but actually i was wonting to put one on the built in tank for my motorhome.I dont think it is possible.But you gave me an idea for my cat thanks for the reply.

RE: propane detector

So are you looking for something that would go in the propane plumbing and detect a slow leak? I don't think they make such a thing because there's no difference in a device like the fridge which uses a tiny amount of PP and an actual leak.I have one already inside the coach but i was hoping to get one with a gauge that would tell me if i am good or not that with fit inline at the tank.

propane detector

RE: converter

What does yours have now? The original would have been fairly primitive by today's standards.I dont know the rv is in storage and i am not there.I was just hoping to get some input from someone that had a p30 from around the same year.

RE: interior light

if the ceiling light also has a switch, try it in both positions why you try the up front toggle in both positions. Could be the light was ON and someone turned it off at the light fixture. If that does not work look for a 12 v blade type fuse. It could be in or near the main breaker panel.I forgot to add that i have already tryed that method and it didnt work.It seems that it is not getting power at the switch.When you say main breaker panel are you talking about the breaker panel in the rear over the bed or the fuses in the dash?

interior light

I have a 92 thor pinnacle.There is a toggle switch up front in the cockpit that turns one of the ceiling lights on in the middle of the coach.It has stopped working.I tryed another bulb from another light that i knew worked but it didnt when i tryed it.Could there be a blown fuse and if so where would i begin to look?Also there is a small light that used to come on when you power on the switch but now it dont.

converter

RE: stripped nut

Would a 1/2-Inch across flat splitting tool work on a battery terminal?
joe0508 04/12/15 11:47pm Tech Issues
RE: stripped nut

Can you put another nut on it and extend the post? Otherwise a nut splitter is the tool you need.It already has 2 nuts on it but to answer your question i can get another nut on it.
joe0508 04/12/15 11:35pm Tech Issues
RE: stripped nut

Those terminals are dirt cheap. Cut the bolt and free up your wiring and install a new terminal on the post and the wiring on the bolt for that purpose. Buy an extra to keep in your parts box. This'll probably come up again.Thanks for the reply.Maybe i can catch a thread by prying up on the nut.I havent tryed that yet.If that dont work i will cut the nut with a tool.

RE: stripped nut

Ok, I edited my reply...please excuse my confusion. Like I said, I would still use the vice grip method and if it didn't work, cut the threaded post off and buy a new one. RonOk thanks,I will try to pry it off first before going the splitter route.Thanks for the help.

RE: stripped nut

I'm a little confused. I assume that since you can't tighten it down, that the terminal is off of the post and the bolt is one that goes through the prongs of the terminal that will tighten around the post with the bolt. If this is the case, I would put a wrench on the head of the bolt and vice grips on the nut and pull upward (or outward) while turning counter clock wise. If that doesn't work, I too would try to cut the bolt in half between the terminal's prongs. Hope this helps RonI am not talking about the part that clamps around the battery post.There is a threaded screw that is made on the clamp that goes on the post.The wires go on this screw with a nut and it wont tighten or loosen.If i could get the nut off all i will have to replace is the clamp.

stripped nut

I have a battery post that i cant loosen or tighten.It is loose and i cant tighten it down.Does anyone have any suggestions on what i need to do to get the bolt off?
